, and to honor, the lessons of sandy hook elementary school? and the realization that unacceptable levels of gun violence plague our cities and towns every day. this unspeakable tragedy, and the individual tragedies that take place on your streets all too often and all too often unnoticed, stand as stark reminders of our shared responsibility to address not just the epidemic of gun-related crimes, and the ongoing need for vigorous enforcement of our laws but also the underlying conditions that give rise to gun violence. throughout our history, the overwhelming majority of american gun owners have been responsible, law-abiding citizens. yet we've repeatedly seen -- in the most tragic ways -- how easy it can be for dangerous people to acquire, and wreak havoc with, deadly weapons. although there's no single solution that can bring a decisive end to this senseless violence, it's incumbent upon each of us to try. and it's time to consider what common-sense steps we can take together -- to save lives. this means doing everything we can to secure the tools and resources we need to keep guns out of the

is true is that there is respond to go a crisis and the crisis happened whether it's hurricane sandy, it's gun violence, it's violence, it's gang violence, you need to be prepared and anticipate those kind of acts and be able to prepare to respond to them but more importantly, you have to work to prevent them. >> that's why the recommendations that we put forward really emphasized four key things: being able to expand access to mental health care. you have the situation in new town where clearly the perpetrator there had suffered for some time either undiagnosed or untreated. >> uh-huh. >> that was a major factor that led to that tragedy. >> as well as in aurora colorado? >> yeah. >> or tucson. columbine was also an instance where bullying played significance. increasing the programs and training for educators and students that help prevent violence that help circum vent violent behavior like anti-bullying programs, being able to upgrade school facilities, being able to have security doorstion being able to have buzz-in doors, that infrastructure is par
